Last night, London Film School was honoured to welcome Walter Murch, the award-winning Editor of iconic films, such as Apocalypse Now, The Godfather, American Graffiti, and The English Patient to an after-hours Masterclass for LFS students and alumni.
As a master in his field, Walter Murch coined the term ‘Sound Designer,’ and helped to elevate the art and impact of film sound to a new level.
Speaking to a packed room, Walter Murch delivered a wonderful insight into the history of editing film, elaborating on his approach to editing films such as Apocalypse Now and The English Patient, and the importance of a filmmakers' impact on an audience.
His talk was introduced by Gisli Snaer, LFS' Acting Director, followed by audience questions and ending with exuberant applause.
We will be posting selected excerpts from the insightful talk soon.
